Thanks & Surgery

Thank you so much to everyone who donated items, money, and/or time along with  all of those who came out to Cold Stone last night.  It was such a fabulous turnout, and it was wonderful to see everyone.  Thanks again to Chris Garrido for organizing it! 

Due to the infection that keeps recurring and the fever, I will be having surgery tomorrow morning.  The reconstruction will have to be removed, and we may readdress that after chemotherapy is done, depending on how things are with the cancer.  At this point, the most important thing is getting the rest of the chemotherapy treatments completed.  I will have to have a little bit of time to recover from the surgery, but hopefully, chemo will be able to resume on December 18th.  After 3 weeks of a fever and recurring infection, I am ready to do whatever is needed to get that taken care of and go back to fighting cancer.

Well, lots to do to get ready for being laid up and unable to lift more than 5 pounds again for a while, so I'm going to make this one short.  Thanks again, and I would appreciate thoughts & prayers for a successful surgery & recovery!
